Carnival Venezia – Our First YouTube Live!

On Saturday, May 13, 2023 we hosted our first solo YouTube Live on land. With the Carnival Venezia inaugural sailing just over two weeks away, we took the time to talk all things Venezia and take viewer requests for what they wanted to see from the ship once we board on May 29 in Barcelona.

Preparing to Go Live

In preparation, we saved all the deck plans, early release images, screenshots from Carnival’s live press conference, and of course, the deck plans. Rocky also built us a new 60-second countdown to live – fancy! We invited people to join on each of our social channels and even posted a header on

As we got ready to press the “go live” button, we had no idea what to expect. Would anyone tune in? Would it last more than 15-20 minutes? Honestly, we were a little nervous!

Cruise Community Delivers

For anyone that’s followed us, you know that I’m a huge fan of the cruise community we’ve found! For our first-ever solo live on land, we were tremendously impressed by your engagement! We had dozens of chats throughout our time together, including meeting other cruisers who will be joining us on the inaugural!

While we assumed we’d spend about 30 minutes interacting and sharing everything Carnival Venezia, there was so much engagement that we went for over an hour answering questions, chatting about the new features, discussing updated room categories, and so much more.

First of several Venezia YouTube Lives

As mentioned on today’s YouTube Live, we’ll be hosting another one from the Carnival Venezia before we even sail away! Join us on Monday, May 29th at 4pm Barcelona time (7:00am PST / 10:00am EST) for the grand reveal and hear our initial thoughts on this ship. Join the waitlist so you don’t miss out!

Carnival Venezia Inaugural

Carnival Venezia is sailing from Barcelona on May 29, 2023 for her inaugural cruise. The Transatlantic voyage will sail around Spain and Portugal for a week before making the journey to her new home port in New York (with a stop in Halifax, Canada along the way).

If you’re sailing on the Venezia’s inaugural cruise, let us know in the comments! We’d love to meet you on board and say hello. It’s always great getting to meet fellow cruisers who are passionate (obsessed?) about this hobby. We call it this cruise life for a reason – it’s such a huge part of our lives and we love getting others excited about cruising!

Hope to see you on board! And if you won’t be sailing, tune in for our live broadcast from Barcelona on May 29th at 7:00am PST / 10:00am EST!
